Distance Education Accessibility Guidelines

Access Guidelines for Media Categories

In general, all electronic information can be placed in one of the following categories:

  • Text

  • Image

  • Audio

  • Video

  • Complex

While the first four categories are hopefully self-explanatory, 'complex' media encompasses any kind of electronic information that includes interactivity with the end user, as well as electronic information that is a combination of multiple media types.

When considering issues of accessibility with any digital media, it is always important to understand the playback context in which the student will open the media.
